by Joe Buonfiglio
I’ll do my best not to let you see
How badly my back has been hurting me.
The US Army can be all they can be.
But my back hurts so bad, I can’t get up to pee.
From this horrible pain, will I ever be free?
I’d kill for a Doc Feelgood’s script for Oxy.
Doing so much Ibuprofen that Satan laughs with glee.
So I’ll get through another night with cigars and whiskey.
Lots and lots and lots of whiskey.
